My nephew Giovanni is a survivor of congenital heart disease. Gio was born with a ventricular septal defect (VSD) -- meaning he was born with a hole in the wall of his heart that separates the two lower chambers called ventricles. Just 3 days prior to Gio turning 1 years old he underwent open heart surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital to repair his VSD. Gio is now 16 years old with a full life ahead of him.

Please help me celebrate a heart I love!
